Since we were staying at the Marriott Woodmen Park we decided to go to this restaurant for a dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were not disappointed. He had the tasting menu which came with wine pairings and every course he thought was great. They brought him a special birthday surprise. They also have private dining rooms upstairs which... More

At conference at nearby hotel and had lunch here. Staff was attentive initially and at end (had to ask for hot sauce for fries 3x with only 2 other tables in same room). Lovely wood fireplace made dining room feel cozy on cold day. Fish soup was good. Lamb and goat cheese sandwich had good flavor but lamb was just... More

Having become tired of the usual formulaic fare on offer in most restaurants my wife and I were on the lookout for something a bit different and more upscale. We found it here. It's a small restaurant close to the Woodley park-Zoo metro and it offers genuine French cuisine that is authentic in taste and well-presented. We split a prawn... More

Cute, little place serving more than French: pasta and pizzas, too. I enjoyed the grilled seafood salad and it’s fresh grapefruit (a great pairing for most shellfish). About $30 per person for lunch, no booze or dessert, before tip.

The green salad was good, the salmon with beans was very good but small portion sizes, the lasagne had no cheese and was small, the chicken & fries is the best value to get plenty to eat.

Very nice place with good food. Atmosphere was very family friendly, very cozy . Easy to find in the neighborhood and has a great wine selection. Check their website before you visit to see what the specials are ate and ask for them.

I was a bit disappointed from the start, due to only having a brunch menu at lunchtime on Saturday. I got a couple of mimosas and the French toast with sausage. Service was a little slow, food average, but I was potentially biased from the start, since I was looking for lunch.

I was here for a rehearsal dinner so I never saw the regular menu or its prices. The food we were served--chilled melon soup, salad, bronzino, chicken, desserts--was all very good. Everyone around me was satisfied with their dinner. The restaurant seems to be in an old house and is charming and reasonably romantic.

Had a wonderful dinner here during a recent visit to the Marriott Wardman for the national bridge tournament. The service and food were impeccable. Especially liked the Beef Bouregionne

This place is a combination French food/pizza place. It was odd. My daughter and I ended up sharing a very bland, yet expensive pizza.
